Tropical Golf 19/05
Landis On Top On Close Finish At Treasure Hill
Hello Pattaya Golfers and those interested! The date above is no misprint, the Tropical Golfers played on Thursday instead of the usual Friday this week due to a Thai holiday. Never mind the courses are no busier on such days, they charge increased rates. Sixteen golfers headed out to brave the heat and then have a long weekend.
Treasure Hill has a good special on now with just 250 bt to rent a cart (not share) with their ‘All In’ deal for those looking to take it a bit easier. The course would be classified in good-to-fair condition considering the time of year. The fairways were mostly green but there were enough bare patches too. Greens were good. The layout at Treasure Hill is interesting, the course scenic, and that #16, Par 5, Crocodile hole is tough to par! Back in the clubhouse it seems the scores were all over the place more than normal. While the poor performers moped the winners were announced.
On top of the hill was Landis Brooks (hcp 10) with a stellar 40 points! Great course management Landis. Next were three “37-pointers” with count-back finishes of Barry Elphick (28), John Davis (15) and Steve Truelove (8). What a finish! Good playing guys. Stay hydrated everyone and happy golfing.
